Cleveland agreed Wednesday to allow protests closer to the site of the Republican National Convention, approving rule changes that increases the amount of space demonstrators can occupy and permits longer events.
Changes will make protests and other activity much more visible along the city’s parade route and extend the deadline to apply for event permits.
A federal judge ruled last week that Cleveland’s protests and marches regulations infringed on the right of free expression, ordering city officials to negotiate new rules.
However, the protests will not go directly by the Quicken Loans Arena where the convention will take place.
The changes also added buffer times between protests for safety purposes.
